She's walked down the runway for some of the most prestigious fashion houses in the world, but just a few days ago Arlenis Sosa had the "best catwalk of her life". The Victoria's Secret model married her basketball player love Donnie McGrath in her native Dominican Republic in a beautiful, outdoors ceremony.

The 26-year-old bride stunned in a form-fitting Reem Acra gown, which featured a floral lace illusion bodice with long sleeves, and a trailing full-length skirt.

Arlenis, who matched her dress with a traditional veil, let her natural beauty shine through and applied just a touch of make-up, while sweeping her hair into an elegant bun.

Her wedding dress designer shared a gorgeous photo of the bride being escorted down the aisle by her father, and fittingly captioned it: "The beautiful super model Arlenis Sosa walked down the aisle in this sexy #ReemAcra dress. #Beautiful#Wedding #Love @realarlenissosa".

Arlenis completed her bridal look with an exotic bouquet of fresh white orchids. Her new husband Donnie, 31, complemented his other half in a pale lilac orchid-hued suit.

Sharing a photo of herself and Donnie taking their first steps as newlyweds, Arlenis captioned one Instagram photo, "Walking out as MR & MRS McGrath #admwedding happiness!!" while also adding in her native Spanish, "I'm the happiest bride in the world."

The model, who appeared in the 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, also posted a sweet group photo with some of her closest girlfriends. Arlenis and Donnie tied the knot in front of approximately 150 guests.

The new Mrs McGrath gave fans a glimpse of her wedding venue, sharing a snap of a beach resort on the day of the ceremony. "Few hours to do the best catwalk of my life!!! Can't wait! #admwedding," she wrote.

The lovebirds, who have jetted off to Bali for their paradisiacal honeymoon, enjoyed a first date in Paris. The couple had met once before and the American-Irish athlete couldn't stop thinking about the beautiful model; so when Arlenis was in the French capital for a job, he flew over from Greece to take her out for dinner.
